We are looking for the brightest young engineers and applied scientists interested in pursuing a PhD in engineering or applied science disciplines to attend an all-expense-paid weekend in New York City for the Columbia Engineering EngAGE program. EngAGE is designed to help prepare you for your future at Columbia Engineering by introducing you to our faculty and students as well as our world-class facilities and renowned campus in one of the most exciting cities in the world. We will also provide information and successful strategies from our graduate admissions professionals to help you prepare a competitive graduate school application.
When is the event?
The annual EngAGE weekend is held in a Thursday through Saturday format to provide you with the unique opportunity to experience Columbia Engineering campus life. The 2019 program will take place from January 31, 2019-February 2, 2019.
Who is Eligible?
Priority will be given to college juniors from historically underrepresented groups. Columbia University is committed to creating and supporting a community diverse in every way: race, ethnicity, geography, religion, academic and extracurricular interest, family circumstance, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background and more. New York is one of the most diverse cities in the world and, no matter your background, you will find an academic home here with us.
In addition to an all-expense paid weekend in New York City, you will meet with our admissions staff and learn how to prepare a competitive graduate school application. You will also meet faculty with similar research interests to your own and spend time with current graduate students to gain their perspective on the benefits of being a Columbia University graduate student.
